The Indian government has lifted a ban on Jallikattu, a version of bull fighting which has been popular for thousands of years in the southern state of Tamil Nadu.
At the annual festival held in January, thousands of men chase the bulls to grab prizes tied to their horns.
The Supreme Court imposed the ban in 2014 following objections from animal rights activists.
The sport will resume this month, after no events were held last year.
The Animal Welfare Board of India has said they will challenge the government order that lifted the ban.
India's Minister for Environment and Forests Prakash Javadekar issued a notification announcing the lifting of the ban on Thursday.
